Good Bush Flying Areas In FS98

Sat Jun 21, 2003 8:59 am

Hi guys
I am starting to get bored with FS98, as it is becoming to easy. Does anyone know of any extremely difficult airports to land at. I dont want to use any downloaded airports because they run slow. So if you know of any challenging airports could you please post them.
Thanks heaps
Ryan

Yep Ive done them both. They are easy especially the Hong Kong approach. Now Its time for a real challenge. Yea I would love to have FS2002 but I dont have the money to buy a new computer. I am envious of all of you.
Any Ideas
Take care

Well see if you can download Carribean scenery with St. Barts, and do the St. Barts approach.

Try taking off a 747-400 at Dutch Harbor.
Try landing a 757 or anything bigger at Paro, Bhutan.
Try taking off a Cessna from Ramechaab (VNRC), Nepal or Rio Amazonas, Ecuador. VERY hard even on a Cessna.
The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

St. Barts in FS98 is somewhat challenging with a light twin...its only a short hop from SXM so you can kill two birds with one stone I suppose...

PS Is St. Barts in FS2k2? I cant seem to find it...

If you get FS2002, check out Kalispell, MT. (KFCA) there's some good stuff around there. The best scenerey that I can think of in FS 98 is Hawaii. Check out Tern I. That's pretty cool.

Maybe try to land on the Aircraft Carrier outside SFO? I have never been able to do that.

Yep...I'll agree with AA61...thats probably the most fun experience you can have in FS98...pretty challenging...look for it about 15 miles west of SFO VOR in the ocean...its CV-64 USS Constellation...which I believe has been decommissioned recently...

Hey guys
Yea St Barts was fun I dont know about challenging though. I love doing the aircraft carrier its heaps of fun. I can land on in most times but sometimes it gets the better of me. Heaps of fun though.

I'd like to try out the Kai-Tak approach. I've tried it once in fs98 and landed successfully, but I'm not sure if I did it correctly. All I know is that when I saw the checkerboard, I banked right and landed. Would a chart help me?

I did the same thing Cramos. I have landed it 2x's. Once with a 757, once wit ha 747-400. Some airlines did the approach differently than others. I know Cathay did a much different approach then Kampuchea (SP?)

Take the helicopter and try to land in the lower deck of the carrier mentioned earlier. That should keep you busy for a few days!

I'm going to start that adventure Checkerboard Approach again in fs98 and give it another try, this time with a chart so I can do it by the numbers. I like that adventure because there's a little bit of ATC involved, and there's a set pattern to fly. In addition, I really like that last minute bank just before touching down!
